  • The cottage comes with all comforts you can ask for. The design is warm and welcoming. The bed rooms have super cozy beds. The kitchen is fully fitted to cook or BBQ for a large group. Needless to say everything was super clean. The outside comes with a small garden and a BBQ. You'll enjoy sunset from the deck. We can only recommend staying here. 5

  • We just had one night to spend in Manapouri and we wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage was beautiful and very comfortable, and the owners were incredibly nice. We were lucky enough to be around when it was time to feed the baby alpacas, and a couple of them ate some alpaca nuts from our hands! 5

  • Very lovely place, clean and tidy with all the amenities you need. Kitchen was very well-equipped and the whole place was nice and warm. The neighbourhood is also very quiet so you are guaranteed a good night's sleep. Owner Jessie is very friendly and it was nice to see the little touches around the cottage. 5

  • Due to changing dates and fitting with other users we were moved to #16 Motu Au Close. Lovely wee house! Perfect for what we wanted (a weekend away from Queenstown) and even better when we were confined to the house once my partner got the flu (again). Jessie was very hospitable - knowing we wouldn't get there until late so the heat pump and lights were on to welcome us in. I would highly recommend Kepler Mountain View, and would definitely look at staying in the future. 5
